Welcome to Gordano Valley Archers

COSE 2016 West of England Club of the Year

f23811c99d03543abe9480cf6.jpgWe are a very open and friendly Archery Club based on the edge of the Gordano Valley at The Downs School in Wraxall, North Somerset.

Our vision is to promote and develop the sport of archery and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.

We aim to achieve this by ensuring we have a highly motivated and professional team of coaches and officials dedicated to the principles of equitable practice.

The club is committed to providing archery as an all inclusive sport and actively promotes the sport as a Triple A sport for all the family. Triple A = All Ability Archery.

St. Valentine’s Day Shoot


Wednesday 13th Feb saw our annual Valentine’s shoot take place. Mercifully it didn’t fall on 14th like last year, so we saw an excellent turn-out.

The Bray 1 was well contested but the lure of chocolate proved as big an incentive.

Well done to all those who landed some of ‘Cupid’s arrows’.
